Pokémon Legends: Arceus apparently inspired by Monster Hunter Stories gameplay

The Pokémon Company issued a statement to Kotaku the game will be more like Monster Hunter Stories.

The Pokémon Company has issued a statement to Kotaku about Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and some fans maybe disappointed by this reveal. Ever since the first trailer dropped for Legends: Arceus, many fans have been comparing it to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This is due to the open areas being shown in the game, and also the rolling green hills have been compared to Breath of the Wild.

The Pokémon Company had posted in a statement sent to Kotaku that it appears the game is more inspired by Monster Hunter Stories than Breath of the Wild. Below is what TPCi (The Pokémon Company International) said to Kotaku.

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Jubilife Village will serve as the base for surveying missions. After receiving an assignment or a request and preparing for their next excursion, players will set out from the village to study one of the various open areas of the Hisui region. After they finish the survey work, players will need to return once more to prepare for their next task. We look forward to sharing more information about exploring the Hisui region soon.

So with this new information revealed, are you still looking forward to this game?
